Wake up your taste buds

Seasonings do more than add flavor - they also bring a host of health benefits to any meal. Red pepper flakes may help prevent ulcers, cinnamon is believed to help regulate blood sugar, and nutmeg improves digestions. Next time you find yourself at the stove, open up the spice cabinet and start experimenting.

    I struggle with that. I tend to get the same herbs and spices that I know what to do with. I won't try a different spice unless I have a recipe and know what it'll taste good in. Those things are expensive and don't keep forever. Haven't you ever purchased a spice for a specific recipe and never used it for anything else! LOL I have! I try to avoid that now. Economic times are hard. LOL

    Once you said Bjork I knew for sure - but I didn't know the facts about its industry, geography and politics! Thanks!

    Nope. I'm so terrible at geography. It's embarassing.
